    PS4 to let you use your real name.............

    Don't think this has been posted already but I see you will be able to use your real name when you first get your PS4! Not sure how many people will actually go for it but it's another tick for PS4 over X1!

    I will go for it… My real name is Christopher and seriously annonimity needs to be scrapped, it will be a better overall experience meeting new players in new games and actually calling them by their real names, forms better buddy relationships over games… it will work I have faith in Sony.

    Only little ones should not use their real identity but since the majority of PS gamers are "19" and over it's not an issue… remember back in 1995 sony said Playstation is designed for the 19 year old… because when you're younger you want to be 19 because it's cool…. and when you're 40 you want to be 19 again..

    Playstation is mainly an adult gaming platform.

    I spell my name differently than it's usual spelling. So anyone who might have met me that I don't really want to talk to will guess that it's me.

    So I won't be using my real name. Besides...it's not like annonimity will end when ppl use their real names. If I meet an Adam....how many Adams are there? Then....if I meet an Adam Carpenter....why would knowing his full name keep him from being a $#@! to me.

    It would only keep down the trolling between ppl who know eachother.

    Like I said....if I know the name of someone in California it's not gonig to make a difference....I still don't know who he is.

    But still it's a lot easier to remember a simple name than remember a stupid fancy username, my username is simple… first 4 letters of my first name… first 4 letters of my last name no one has a username like that but still who the frigg is going to remember it!!

    I don't think there's gonna be that many adams on your friends list… trust me… there would be like one other Chris on my friends list!

    Xb1 will have the same feature....just delayed till next year.

    If I'm already linking my Facebook account (might create a separate one just for gaming), I'll definitely use this. Obviously only friends will see it

    I think that having your name visible to other people will definitely have an impact on accountability when people's true identities are revealed- think about facebook- while people are still pretty rude on there- having your name publicly known makes it easier for people to access you; not only does this make it easier to report you for sanctionable activity, but it also reflects the social aspect they are going for, I tend to get people's real names anyway- I feel that the personal touch really helps to get to know a person
    As such I will also be using my real name (Peter)

    It's also going to make it a lot easier to stalk/bully. I just thought of this since I saw on the news about some girl in Florida commiting suicide due to a couple of other 14 year olds telling her that she needs to drink bleach and die.

    I can see it now...blaming suicides and such on the gaming community.

    I'll be using my real name as well. I stopped caring about anonymity when I came to realize the only way to remain anonymous is to not use any electronics and move to Amish country.

A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    I assume it's only your First name you can use? Either way, I will probably do this, since most of the people on my friends list know my name anyway.

    Well, my name is Bob, but, I spell it backwards

    I occasionally spell it "Bobisabadmoferthatslaysbitchez" of course "isabadmoferthatslaysbitchez" is silent.

    Joking aside, what I want to know is, will PSN allow me to change my account name like Xbox live does?

    NO… that would be like changing your license number… you have the same one forever its who you are !!… you could always just display your real name isabadmoferthatslaysbitchez instead.


    I should just use my real name Chinchisskabessa!!

    First name, probably.. second name, nah. I don't know why, it just feels weird letting random internet people know your real name. Even though it's on facebook and pretty much anyone can see it..

    Kinda worried about using real name online gaming because such as own personal details online can be a factor in some cases

    no on the real name for me. To those who say it's a good idea for everyone yeah right wait till your name is Heather or Jennifer or any female name and see how long before you get 900 messages.

    From what I heard, you were given the choice on who sees your real name and who sees your psn id. If thats the case, then all my real life buds will get my real name and my random interweb buds can get my shepard id

    Come find me on Twitch.tv!

    Yeah, I could see that become a problem for female gamers! I plan to show my real name to people on my friends list, but for multiplayer I will keep using my PSN ID.
